Archipelago received a 2019 NEA grant!



We’re proud to share the news that Archipelago Books has been awarded a generous Art Works grant from the National Endowment for the Arts. This critical funding will support the translation, publication, and promotion of international literature, including titles from Elsewhere Editions, our children’s imprint.

In these times, when xenophobic ideas are on the rise and new borders are being constructed, it is essential to hear from artists and writers whose ideas question our assumptions and expose us to new cultures, communities, and literary traditions. Archipelago Books is grateful to be among the many vital nonprofits benefiting from over $25 million in grants from the NEA this year, and we’re also thankful to have received funding from the NEA for over a decade.  (Do visit the NEA’s website to learn more about the organizations they’re funding this year.) We thank you, NEA!

We rely on grants and the generosity of our community to help us carry out our mission. If you’d like to support Archipelago Books, please make a donation today or email us for details about book sponsorships.
